Apple's plans to develop and manufacture its own branded car may have fallen by the wayside, but the company still remains interested in developing self-driving technologies. So while dozens of engineers have left Project Titan in recent months, Tim Cook this past summer essentially confirmed Apple's ongoing interest in the automotive space while also noting that autonomous driving is now the primary focus of Apple's car ambitions.
"We’re focusing on autonomous systems," Cook said this past June. "It’s a core technology that we view as very important." Cook later added that the entire initiative is "probably one of the most difficult AI projects to work on."
